Behind all the glamour's and razzmatazz of this industry are young men and women who have remained mostly unsung. These are the real heroes who struggle night and day to bring about the beauty of the Nigeria showbiz industry to the front burner.
The award will take into cognizance the contribution of these various individuals and organizations between January – December 2010.
